    Dam! You need a medical reason to have tint that dark in my neck of the woods!

    lol. Thanks for the appreciation.
    The tint is more than double illegal... limit is 35% on rear windows and no tint on the front doors or windshield. im at 15%

    If a cop gave me crap about it I don't think any excuse would fly but for now I just roll the windows down when they are around. Its also a wagon so more windows need a dark tint
    In our city of almost 1 million they don't waste time with tint very often. Maybe if It was a small town I'd be in trouble

    I also drive +95% of the time in the day so night visibility is never a factor and I use my mirrors like a boss
    I love the tint. I have some at home I plan on using for a little strip at the top of the windshield
    If you notice almost every one of my pics has the sun visors down in the front windshield

    I wonder what the production numbers on 5speed Aleros were... That's actually pretty cool in my book.

    Thanks, that's a great question.
    In high school there were probly 5 guys driving their parents Alero's and anyone I talked to wouldn't believe it was a manual 5spd without seeing it.
    People were always shocked at how fast it could be and it taught me all my lessons on how NOT to drive
    I had my LGT for 1 week and the next weekend I wanted to take the alero out for the night just for fun.
    I actually pulled over 2 minutes later and drove home to switch cars back to the LGT


    Forward wheel drive cars and cornering never felt the same after that

    Re: Petro's 2006 BSM 2.5i BP Legacy Wagon *July 4th-more his

    Well after 1.5 years of dealing with my Head gaskets dripping oil slowly I had them fixed. Thanks alot Subaru....
    I'm only at 95,000km and the 25K ive done on the car have been very easy on it.

    I got
    - New HG's both sides
    - New valve cover Gaskets
    - New timing belt + tensioners and all components
    - New AC and Alternator belts
    - New spark plugs
    - New Battery Terminal Contacts(old ones were covered in corrosion from the old battery)
    - Re-sealed a rim with a slow leak were the rubber meets alloy
    - New OEM Subaru long life coolant + new oil
    - Breaks cleaned and inspected, Given the OK and updated expected life of them.


    All done by Subaru Specialist shop http://www.rochdrouinautorepair.com/
    Almost 1hr(all highway) away from home, Twice as far as the dealer but it was worth it.

    On a 2.5 N/A Subaru it's pretty much all general wear and tear stuff and the car has been on the road almost 9 years.

    I bought my Forester from him back in September so we had met before and you deal directly with the owner there.
    I got a free loaner '05 impreza outback with 135K km on it for the 2 days he had my car at his shop, something the dealer would never do for me. The loaner made me appreciate my legacy's so much more. I had about 3hr's of seat time in it and I wouldn't really want to go back. No armrest extension like my FOZ, sound system sucked, And apparently I don't like outback style suspension because it was way more bumpy than my wagon. No Tint sucked too.
    Pics of it






    I had to wash it when I got home




    I have to say it feels a bit faster now, or maybe I just beat the crap out of it on my way home

    Re: Petro's BP BSM 2006 Legacy2.5i Wagon*July 17-new HeadGas

    Shit damn I hit a HUGE box on Huntclub today. broken down it was 3'x4'ish and heavy duty cardboard
    I was doing 90 and it was flat(ish) on the road until the truck in front of me went over it. I never saw it coming
    In half a second it raised and full impacted my bumper spinning threw the air

    There are now many more cracks at the bottom of my bumper but from the sound it made it could be much worse
    The impact sounded like cracking and something breaking and I fully expected the bumper to be cracked in half
    or missing a hole or chunk but its all still there... just not as pretty as earlier today

    Took this pic an hour before it happened

    I drove my parents BMW for an hour yesterday and a V6 RWD German car feels so very different than a suby
    So much power but the feel and the car just aren't my style

    Grrrr.

    Why does the only gas station I drive by on my way home, The closest gas station to my house, have to suck

    I pulled in and started pumping but it sounded weird, like the pump was dying or low?

    anyways I was on E so I was filling up all the way and it didn't stop till I smelt gas and saw it was coming out under my car!
    It never stopped itself and came out in my rear pass wheel well, all over my RA flap and tire and other stuff


    Now my car is SO FULL of gas...

    Re: Petro's BP BSM 2006 Legacy2.5i Wagon*Sept.25- Overfilled

    I just bought a set of these tail lights off eBay

    I cant wait to get them, I think they are pretty rare (maybe JDM but I think they are EUR)
    they look good on the silver and will be different from everyone else

    Might require some re-wiring since brake and signal are switching up and down but that aint no thang

    Pretty sure those are facelift lights, came stock on 06+ JDM (and NZ new, don't know about AU/EU) wagons.

    cool, I know I don't see many pictures of them on most forums

    I got confirmation of shipping on Monday and was checking another part from the same seller today and there is a disclaimer saying they are away until Oct.16 and not processing or shipping orders in that time.

    YAY! what great timing, I would not have been happy if I tried to buy them today

    Re: Petro's BP BSM 2006 Legacy2.5i Wagon*Sept.25- Overfilled

    Yeah they look very nice, imho much better than some LED lights and definitely miles better than pre-facelift.

    Re: Petro's BP BSM 2006 Legacy2.5i Wagon*Sept.25- Overfilled

    so my tracking said they were shipped and today they arrived in Canada
    cleared customs and are now on their way to my location

    I'm the shipping/receiving manager at my work and have my own office beside the back door so I have everything shipped to work
    All the regular drivers know and like me and my work involves VERY fragile items so they take extra good care for me

    I'm guessing I'll be driving home from work sometime next week with fancy new tails installed before I leave

    On a side note Monday I dropped an object similar to a 10lbs disk weight directly on my big toe.
    Not broken but I can still barely walk. They needled through my nail to drain the blood
    I have size 14 feet so my swollen big toe is now HUGE

    So much car stuff to do before winter and I'm couch bound

    Re: Petro's BP BSM 2006 Legacy2.5i Wagon*Sept.25- Overfilled

    Got my JDM tail lights today!

    When I saw them go on ebay for $95 each I had to jump on them
    It was too good a deal on such rare tail lights, I didn't want to spend the money but couldn't say no
    I've never seen another set in person so I get to be the only one around here with them


    They came with pig tails but I reused my stock ones with the slightest modifications needed.
    I got 1 amber turn buld with the new set but the other socket was empty.
    My stock turn signal bulbs are clear so right now I have 1 amber/1 clear. Need to buy an amber bulb tmw

    Install took 20min start to finish and I was being very careful


    1 of each


    and done





    Cant wait to get some full body shots

    I'm so happy I got these

    Thanks You know, 4th gens are awesome

    I had a couple in my car yesterday and they own a civic and a ford Ranger and they loved how smooth the ride was


    I tried to get pics of the lights on this morning but it was raining and looking at the pics none of them turned out

    I guess I can cross them off my "Future Plans" and update my first post in this thread :smt026

    Re: Petro's BP BSM 2006 Legacy2.5i Wagon*Oct.7- JDM Tails

    Am I correct assuming that JDM facelift (wagon) lights are different form USDM facelifts? I'm so confused with all the different USDM models/parts.

    Re: Petro's BP BSM 2006 Legacy2.5i Wagon*Oct.7- JDM Tails

    Yes, I think it goes

    USDM 05-07



    JDM 03-06 (similar but darker amber part)






    USDM 08-09



    JDM 06-08



    and the only after market ones I know of are these LED Valenti ones



    So many choices and I'm happy with mine

    I think I have to get some good pics with a real camera and not my base model iphone4
    Then maybe go for a ROTM soon?

    I was gonna take the Foz shopping today but I'm glad I didn't
    I found an '05 BP to take some comparison shots.
    The parking lot was getting busy so I didn't have a chance to take great picks

    The need for snow tires was really starting to weigh heavy on my mind.
    We NEED them cause come January we will be transporting precious back seat cargo

    I was willing to spend whatever it cost but obviously don't have a lot of extra money.
    I know buying new could easily run me $1K and I wanted dedicated rims too

    I have seen lots of LGT rims with winter tires for sale but all way over priced and I was trying to hold out for that perfect, stars aligning deal

    and it happed




    I met the guy 10min away from my house and within an hour of the ad being up I had these in my possession




    The ad says "a little banged up" but they are in better shape than my stock rims.
    They just need a good clean (but not that good as you can see from the pics)
    They aren't a fancy name brand tire but they will probly only see 1K-2000km of use this winter so I'll see how they hold up

    around here people are usually listing LGT rims (no tires) for around $300-$400 so I'm super happy with this deal!
